- For other uses, see Excalibur.
The Excalibur's construction started after the second Borg invasion of the Federation using some older systems from previous vessels.
The command crew of the original Excalibur was present when the vessel was commissioned. The Excalibur-A was originally to be under the command of Captain Elizabeth Shelby, but she relinquished command after the dramatic reappearance of the believed-to-be-dead Mackenzie Calhoun, the captain of the previous Excalibur.
Shortly after the vessels dedication, Captains Calhoun and Shelby were married on the bridge of the Excalibur-A in a ceremony presided over by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. (NF - Excalibur novel: Restoration)
Soon after, the Excalibur was sent to investigate unusual energy signatures in Zone 18 Alpha. There, the Excalibur encountered the Beings, who claimed to be ancient Earth gods. The Excalibur’s saucer section was equipped with warp drive and left the system while the stardrive section battled the Being’s and was heavily damaged. The USS Trident arrived in the system just in time to defend the defenseless stardrive section. (NF - Excalibur novel: Being Human)
The Excalibur was one of the ships to respond to the Borg invasion of the Alpha Quadrant. Leading a Task Group of eight ships, Captain Calhoun joined up with the USS Enterprise-E and deferred command to that starship. It joined the battle near Earth. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor)
During the invasion of the Borg Collective in 2381, Starbase 343 was one of five simultaneous attacks along with bases 157 and 234 and the planets of Khitomer and Korvat. The Excalibur protected the base during the battle, and attempted to reproduce the phase inverter technique the USS Ranger used, but the Borg had already adapted; instead, they used the same technology to augment torpedoes and destroyed the cube. The Excalibur signaled an all-clear, but was heavily crippled and unable to rendezvous with the Enterprise at the Azure Nebula. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night) After the engagement, Starfleet Command had evidence indicating that the Borg had adapted to this attack, and its use was therefore dismissed by a think tank that included Seven of Nine.
